While staff, faculty and students have the option of receiving the vaccine through UCLA, our supplies are currently limited, and the number of doses we expect to receive will likely be far fewer than the number of eligible employees.
Members of the Bruin community may find they’re able to schedule a vaccination sooner through the state, a local county health agency or their primary care provider. UCLA is encouraging all those eligible to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity, wherever they can.
- For those who have not yet received an invitation from UCLA Health, the fastest option may be to book an appointment through California’s My Turn portal, which allows residents throughout the state to schedule a vaccination close to where they live.
- Employees who do book an appointment through My Turn may need to bring employment and residential documentation (PDF) to their vaccination. Student workers who do not have a traditional pay stub may obtain a verification letter through their principal investigator or other supervisor.
- In addition, UCLA employees who live in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County and Ventura County can continue to check their local public health department for vaccine availability.
- Employees can also learn how their UC health plans are handling vaccinations by visiting the vaccine websites of Anthem, Health Net, Kaiser Permanente and UnitedHealthcare or by contacting their primary care provider.
